Growing in Faith
Women’s ministry opportunities give the ladies in our church a special time of fellowship and interaction.  
No matter what stage of life you are in-single or married, wrangling a toddler, teenager or grandchild-there is a women’s ministry opportunity for you here. 
Find your space to live out God’s purpose for your life alongside other women doing the same.  We hope you’ll feel welcome and share your gifts with us!

For moms of young children
Led by Shelby Javens 
Adult Education Classroom

There is hope for every mom, no matter how unnatural she feels at the mothering task.  God has made her according to a brilliant design, and her family’s story is not a mistake! These are the bold declarations that Hettie Brittz shares in five fun-filled, practical sessions debunks the myth of the perfect mom and shares personal stories of many moms who feel the same.  The series explores the unique mothering strengths, needs and stress factors, and discover why certain seasons in parenting feel more “out of sync” than others. The series will free mothers of all ages from pressures placed on them by society, and give them practical tools to build a legacy on the foundation of their God-given blueprint and an unwavering trust in God’s redemption. Sign up at Living Word Information Center or email Kim Deines at kim@livingwordmarshall.org.  No materials to order or purchase. Child care is not provided.
